The Best Place You've Never Been!

We hear it all the time: “I always pass by that place and think about stopping in.” Does that sound like you? Well, think about it no more.

On the Border of the Quarter since 1939, Buffa’s Bar & Restaurant is the quintessential New Orleans style neighborhood bar. We're open 11AM to close seven days a week!
